The NKP was founded in 1957 as a merger of the Conservative Party, National Liberal Party and the Catholic Social Party in order to create a big-tent party of the right. The NKP held government several times in the 20th century promoting centre-right and Sotirian democratic policies. It was in opposition from 1979 to 1999 before coming back to power under Rasa Šalaševičiūtė, the first Ruttish and female Chancellor who oversaw the Weranian response to the Great Recession. The party came back to power in 2019 under Otto von Hößlin who has supported a more national conservative and euclesceptic position.

A merger of the Social Democratic Party of Werania and the Radical Party in 1977 the SRPO was intended to serve as a centre-left counterpart to the NKP in order to facilitate the creation of a two-party system. The SRPO first came to power in 1979 under Ludolf Ostermann who would become Werania's longest serving Chancellor in 100 years. Initially aligned with the socialist OSAI the party embraced third way politics during the 1980's overseeing economic liberalisation. The party lost power in 1999 entering government again in 2011 in a coalition with liberal parties. In 2019 the party suffered its worst result since 1999.

Founded in 1977, the Green Party has been represented in the Weranic Reichstag since 1987 following increased awareness of environmental issues. The Greens have risen in terms of support since the 2005 recession due to their progressive politics but has never served in the federal government albeit has helped run governments in the federal states. The Green party became the third largest political force in the 2019 elections attaining roughly the same support as the SRPO.

The Modern Centre Party was founded in 1972 following the student protests that year by a group of student activists and intellectuals who espoused a common programme of radicalism, liberalism and political reform. The PMZ entered government in 1983 with the SRPO where they promoted economic and social liberalism, going into opposition in 1999. They reformed a coalition government with the SRPO in 2011 as the junior partner where they pushed through austerity policies to reduce public expenditure. The PMZ lost power alongside the SRPO in 2019. They tend to be the most pro-Euclean of all the Weranic parties being in favour of a federal Euclea.

The Democratic Alternative was formed in 1985 by right-wing members of the National Consolidation Party dissatisfied with the party leadership. The DA contains a mixture of national conservatives, national liberals, libertarians and populists but is broadly united by a strong souverainiste policy towards the Euclean Community, supporting an exit from the organisation. The DA since 2019 serves in the federal government as the junior partner to the NKP.

A party that exclusively runs in Ruttland, the NNK was formed in 1999 by businessmen Arvydas Ražauskas. Its main position is the establishment of an independent Ruttish republic and is considered the main separatist party in the free state. On other policies it is considered populist supporting a broadly progressive economic policy coupled with conservative social policies and strong environmentalist positions. It formed the Ruttish regional government from 2008-2012 and since 2019 is the biggest party in Ruttland.

The oldest party in Werania, the OSAI during the first half of the 20th century was one of the major socialist parties in Euclea being supportive of orthodox socialism, albeit representing a more reformist path then Swetanian and Marolev socialists. It declined following the emergence of the SRPO and the Green parties with changes in the structures of the economy seeing a general decline in union based labour the OSAI relied on for its support base. It is still close to the General Federation of Weranic Workers' (ABOA), the second largest federation of trade unions in Werania.

Formed in 1919 as the Democratic Homeland Party, the SDT runs solely in Ruttland. Founded with close connections to the Ruttish clergy throughout the latter half of the 20th century it established itself as the largest party in Ruttland alongside the Social Democratic Party-Labour Union (the SRPO's branch in Ruttland) and the NKP. It also served in federal governments from 1999-2011 and 2015-2019. Although nominally a conservative party the SDT has often been seen as a pragmatic force serving in coalition with conservatives, liberals and socialists.

A far-right party, the OVFP are the modern forebearers of the Völkisch movement which has roots in the pre-unification states of Werania. The OVFP are the only party that supports the unification of all Weranic lands, specifically Cisvetania in Swetania. The party rose in popularity during the financial crisis but has since declined in support due to its extremist tendencies.

Being representative of the Aldman community, the AFP mainly is concentrated on the Estmerish border in Cislania. A centrist party that is broadly liberal and pro-Euclean, the AFP often serves as a coalition partner for the Cislanian government due to its ideology flexibility.

The oldest party representing the interests of the island of Ostry, the ÒSL stems from a nationalist and agrarian socialist tradition, and often campaigns for the separation of Ostry from Werania as an independent republic. In recent years, the party has also supported various environmental causes.

A political grouping within the Reichstag following the founding the Weranic state, the AOP largely supported the unification of all Weranic lands through diplomatic and military means. It had the support of both the Emperor Sigismund and Chancellor Ulrich von Bayrhoffer who modelled the parliamentary grouping into supporting the same Whiggish-liberal nationalist policies of the Chancellory. Following the failure of the War of the Triple Alliance to annex Cisvetania into Werania and von Bayrhoffer's dismissal from office his successor Ferdinand Karl von Schillingsfürst was unable to keep the party united resulting in its collapse in 1856.

The radical party was founded as a loose political faction of radicals, liberals and republicans who wished to recreate the Weranic republic. The party became organised by the 1890's but lost its pre-eminent position on the left after the rise of the socialist OSAI party. The RP was a member of the popular front government of 1915-1918 but soon began to participate in various centre-left, centrist and right-wing governments leading one from 1935-1937 under Gottfried Baltrusch. The foundation of the PMZ in the 1970's led to the radicals to decline in support and merge with the social democrats to form the SRPO in 1977.

1842 1957
Comprised primarily of reactionaries and monarchists the Conservative party was for the early part of its existence marginalised due to Emperor Sigismund's preference for the AOP and National Liberal Party. Under the leadership of Chancellor Xaver von Aehrenthal during the early 1880's the party gained the patronage of the emperor beginning a long stint in power. In 1903 the party lost power and with a move away from first-past-the-post to single-non-transferable-vote the KP became marginalised as the Catholic Social Party became the main right-wing force. The party participated in several cabinets most notoriously when its leader Waldemar von Stürgkh promoted authoritarian policies. They merged into the NKP in 1957.
National Liberal Party Werania logo.png National Liberal Party

Founded by former members of the AOP, the national liberal party was dominant from the 1850's to the 1880's. Its most famous members were Chancellors Franz Joseph of Wittislich (1859-1867) Lothar von Kuehnelt (1903-1910) and Otto Röttgen (1930-1935) the latter of whom led Werania through the Great War. The NLP like the KP declined after voting reforms in the 1910's subsequently being a core component of centrist and right-wing coalitions. Like the KP and KSP it was discredited by colonial wars and in 1957 merged into the NKP.

The JRP was formed in 1876 following the failure of Chancellor Franz Gustav von Reichenstein to extend home rule to Ruttland. Comprised primarily of Ruttish intellectuals the JRP was part of a general movement that revived the Ruttish language and cultural aspects, being firmly rooted in liberal assumptions. The JRP pushed for home rule albeit factions within it favoured outright independence. The JRP was dissolved in 1930 during the Great War after the Weranic government feared it would side with the Gaullican-backed Ruttish Republic.

The OBb was formed by members of the KP following a liberalisation of agricultural tariffs in 1886. The OBb mainly came from the landed gentry initially but soon became close to the Völkisch movement in order to expand their support, becoming the main representatives for rural Werania. Changes in the electoral system, the rise of the KSP as the main party of poor and middle class Catholics and the later development of the rival National Völkisch Movement led to the OBb to decline in support. The discrediting of Völkisch politics following the Great war further eroded their support and they merged into the NKP in 1962 with its Völkisch faction forming the Weranic Völkisch Freedom Party.

Founded by the Mayor of Kolreuth Eduard von Oldenburg the KSP soon competed with the OSAI as the largest party of Werania gaining strong support from the Catholic church. A largely centrist party the KSP was a part of every government from 1910 to its dissolution in 1957 aside from the 1915-1919 Popular Front government becoming a pragmatic force with little fixed ideology. A strong supporter of a social market economy the KSP under its leader Konstantin Vogel was the main party to push for the creation of the NKP in 1957.

The SPO were founded in 1919 as the pro-war wing of the OSAI party that supported conflict with Swetania which the OSAI government had opposed. Although founded "supporting the revolutionary proletariat" the SPO soon moved to the right adopting a revisionist and reformist line. During the 1950's it formed the grand coalition between the OSAI and KSP before largely aligning with the OSAI and RP against the NKP. In 1977 it decided to merge with the RP to form the SRPO.

The OSU was created in 1914 after nationalist members of the OSAI were expelled for opposing a Popular Front strategy. Centred around Siegfried Höcker the OSU began to support national syndicalism, neo-socialism and a form of neo-Caciarellism that called for a small vanguard to secure a proletarian revolution. The OSU steadily moved to the right with some of its members joining the NVB but continued to be a marginal player in Weranic politics. It was dissolved in 1922 by the Weranic government after Höcker attempted a putsch against the Weranian government.

The NVB was created predominantly by a collection of national syndicalists from the OSU, former members of the conservatives and radicals within the OB. A quasi-functionalist party based around its leader August Vorbeck the NVB came first in the 1924 but failed to form government. During the Great War the NVB allied with Gaullica with 1927 creating the Volkhöfen Government which collaborated with Gaullica. The creation of the Ruttish Republic and continued demands for a "greater Werania" led to tensions between Vorbeck and Gaullica with Vorbeck being killed in 1930. In 1933 the NVB and Volkhöfen Government was dissolved by Gaullica with its cadres executed.

The TPP was created by a coalition of Ruttish nationalists in 1920 with its leader Zydrunas Biržiška splitting from the YTP. Although initially a national conservative party following the invasion of Werania during the Great War the party aligned with Gaullica and played a major role in the creation of the Ruttish Republic. The TPP soon modelled on Gaullica's Popular Party adopting functionalism and corporate statism mixing it with strident Ruttish nationalism that was anti-Weranic in character. The RS was dissolved in 1934 with the fall of the Ruttish Republic and murder of its last leader Rytis Sleževičius.

The ORP was formed during the colonial conflict over East Ardam where it advocated a hardline position of no independence for any Weranic colonies and the preservation of the greater Weranic empire. Having strong support from dietsmen from the colonies the ORP served briefly in the government of Gustav von Pittermann but left after ORP leader Jakob Schießler supported the Colonels putsch. The ORP briefly became the third largest party following the independence of East Ardam before declining in relevance. During the 1960's the party sought to reinvent itself as a right-wing alternative to the NKP but was seen as being beholden to the far-right leading to its dissolution in 1972.

A split from the OSAI party, the BDS was heavily inspired by Floren politics supporting anarcho-syndicalism and espousing new left positions becoming popular amongst left-wing intellectuals critical of the conformity of the OSAI and the reformism of the SPO. Following the 1972 protests the party briefly enjoyed a medium amount of popularity but declined in the 1980's due to the rise of the Greens. In 1998 the party merged into the Green party.

The DVP was formed from the right-wing of the Radical Party that refused to merge into the SRPO due to its socialist manifesto. The DVP would steadily decline in seats during the 1980's but refused to merge into other party's due to its "principled" stance in support for radicalism and classical liberalism. After losing its remaining seats in the 1996 election the party voted to disband itself on a federal level.

OR was formed in 1996 by the liberal faction of the Green party who opposed the party's policy of refusing to go into government with any other party. It entered the cabinet of Rasa Šalaševičiūtė in 1999 where it promoted a mixture of liberal and conservative policies, being seen as a centrist party overall. The 2005 financial crisis saw support for the party dissipate and in 2009 the OR agreed to dissolve itself facing electoral wipeout in the 2011 elections.
